Bridal Portraits?

I am having my bridal portraits this Sunday. We were going to take them at the arboretum, but since it will be a scorching 100 degrees I think we would be pretty miserable!

So, I'm thinking about looking into a nice hotel in Dallas, the aquarium, or the old railroad house in Ft. Worth. Not sure what these people will charge to take pictures there though, boo!! Does anyone have any suggestions for indoor places that will allow brides to come in without paying an arm and a leg?

3 Months Away

I'm getting really excited! I can't believe we are only three months away. I know the time will fly so I am trying to soak it all in and enjoy it while it lasts.

Here a few highlights I'm looking forward to:

1. Matt man breakin it down on the dance floor:

2. Beautiful flowers like these

3. First Dances. I just hope I can make it through my dance with Dad. I can't even listen to the song the whole way through without crying.

4. The wedding shower coming up that these beautiful ladies are planning:

This means so much to me that they are planning my shower. I know it's going to be a fun day! Thanks to all of you guys!!

5. Seeing my family, cousins, and friends come together for one great night!

Sweet Caroline!

This past weekend we had a surprise birthday party for my precious niece Caroline.
Although she wasn't too surprised and somehow figured it out we still had a great time! We were able to swim at Steph's in that 95 degree weather.

Here's a great one of the birthday girl squirting her PaPa

There was pinata action happening as well. Her strong big brother,Ian, busted it open

Caroline spinning Haley

Steph spinning Ian, a lot!!

Yummy birthday cake from Stein's. That is Steph and Mom's favorite

Johnny and Chelsea

Ian and Uncle Matt with some buddies

Sweet Emi and me

Bryan and me chowing down on our candy bracelet. I love those things!

100 Days until the Wedding!!!

Today marks 100 days until 9.19.09. I'm getting really excited about all the little details. It's going to be so much fun and everybody needs to be prepared to dance and have a good time, especially all you new mommies out there!!

Here are a few things that I have left to take care of if anyone has ideas or suggestions please chime in!

1. Flower girls/ring bearers attire. I have been looking online on craigslist and e-bay, but not finding too much. This is the flower girl dress I want for them.
2. Transportation after the wedding.
3. Bryan's gift
4. Song for the kids to walk out to for the ceremony

Random list I know, but it really has dwindled down quite a bit!

New Engagement Photos!

Here's the latest engagement photos from the Dallas Arboretum. You can view them here

I love all the flowers and sculptures that they have there. We were able to do so many shots. I think one of my favorites is our back to back photo on this ledge. Even though it was pretty hot we had a good time. Enjoy the pictures!

I'm super excited!!! Bryan booked our hotel at Karisma in Riviera Maya, Mexico!! It's a really nice resort that my friend Megan from work went to for her honeymoon and absolutely loved it! She said they have awesome food and tons of activities.

Here is a view of the swim up part of our room:

{image found here}

There is a lazy river that goes through the hotels. We can just hop in there from our room and go to the pool or swim up bar, how cool is that?!?

Here is the link to view the full room

This will make you drift off for a bit. It's the description of the room:

Swim Up Jacuzzi Jr Suites

Swim-Up Jacuzzi Junior Suites offer you convenience and luxury in equal measure. Here, the inviting waters of the lazy river are just off your terrace, ready to slip into for a trip to the main pool or swim-up bars. Or enjoy your Jacuzzi inside and surround yourself in the romantic elegance of your romantically appointed oversized suite.

I can't wait!!!

So things are winding down and I only have 3 months till the wedding!! Wohoo! One of the few big things left that I need to lock in is a florist. Anyone have any ideas? I may have Emi do a few small arrangements for smaller tables since she took a flower arranging class.

I don't want anything too outrageous, but would love anyones input on ideas. If you guys know anyone personally I always love helping out friends!
